Whether you had a wild night out, or a quiet evening in, like we did, a new year has arrived.

I don’t do resolutions, mostly because I’ve got enough going on already, and trying to remember to start something new just stresses me out.

We do have some “bettering” traditions. We’ve been fixing up our townhouse, bit by bit, for the last 4 years, and we start each year with a list of projects we hope to have completed by December 31st. So there’s that.

And over the month of December, I created a new writing habit, thanks to author Linda Urban’s Write Daily 30 challenge. Thanks to that commitment, I managed to add just shy of 19,000 words to my current project, despite all the craziness (and sickness) in our household during the month of December. I’m continuing that challenge with Debbie Ridpath Ohi’s Daily Words.

And because words carry meaning, I’m going to adopt one for the 2015 year. Something I can put up on my bathroom mirror as a reminder everyday. I’m not sure what the word is yet, but I’m working on it.

And then in July, we’re celebrating our 10th anniversary with a kid-free trip to HAWAII! So when I’m not on the computer adding words, I’m on the computer looking at pictures of white beaches, and umbrellas (both the shade kind and the kind in bright pink drinks).

So happy 2015, friends.

May the year bring you all the hopes you have on this, the first day of January.
